Solid trading update & new facilities
Accrol has this morning released an encouraging trading update, essentially confirming that the company is continuing to trade in line with expectations and the strategy is progressing well. We are maintaining our forecast assumptions for now, despite a “less favorable macro-economic environment”. While the shares have performed well of late, we believe the valuation remains attractive given its growth potential and unique market positioning and believe the risk/reward profile remains positive from here.

Results to the left of them, results to the right of them
We continue to see outperformance by the junior market indices. In our view, this is largely due to smaller companies delivering robust trading in updates, although M&A activity is also playing a part. Indeed, the majority of corporate results continue to be in line with expectations. The UK election rumbles on in the background and near term the focus will likely remain on the domestic political landscape. In Share News & Views we have covered Braemar Shipping*, Downing Strategic Micro-Cap Investment Trust*, Invesco Growth Trust* and Warpaint London*.

The Joy of Techs
Enterprise-focused niche applications of tech illustrate how, while trends appear to be fluctuating away from the current poster children of fintech and the Internet of Things, in fact these developments are refining appropriate application of existing technologies.

Increased TP on back of maiden results
Warpaint has delivered maiden results for 2016 ahead of expectations due to W7 continuing to grow sales strongly and a slightly better gross margin. This led to proforma adj. PBT of £6.7m (vs SSL’s £6.4m) on sales of £27.0m (£26.5m) and adj. EPS (8.6p vs 7.9p), the final dividend (1.5p vs 1.2p) and net cash (£3.5m vs £3.0m) all being better than forecast. We have upgraded our EBITDA forecasts for 2017 and 2018 and on the back of increased cash flow forecasts we raise our DCF-derived TP to 300p (from 170p) and keep our Buy rating.

Acquisition of drug-free treatment for premature ejaculation
The UK developer of life sciences, beauty, and personal care products has acquired the entire share capital of Ergon Medical Limited, the owner of the intellectual property rights of ProlongTM, the world’s only medical device cleared by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for premature ejaculation (PE). The Class II vibrating medical device as classified by the FDA is designed to increase the time between arousal and ejaculation through the use of training sessions using the stimulating vibratory effects of the device on the penis as part of the “Start-Stop” technique. In a clinical trial in Finland, which featured a group of lifelong sufferers of PE, 70% of patients who failed on all known treatments including drug treatment, improved after being treated with ProlongTM, and the improvement was either sustained or bettered six months after completion of the treatment.

"US equities demonstrated a lack of direction over the course of trading on Tuesday, having closed mostly higher the previous day. The two major averages spent the session fractionally either side of unchanged, leaving just the NASDAQ to put on an acceptable gain, chalking up a new record close with the technology sector being one of just two S&P-500 sectors to finish in the positive. Microsoft stood out with a 2% gain following Soros Fund Management's disclosure it had more than tripled its stake in the Group, which is seen to be a long-term beneficiary of the WannaCry ransomware attack. Elsewhere, however, the Washington Post's claim that Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian officials in a White House meeting last week unnerved investors from the start, even if his National Security Advisor, HR McMaster, considered the discussions to be "appropriate". The President allegedly asking then-FBI Director James Comey to drop a probe into his former NSC advisor, Michael Flynn, has prompted some congressional Republicans to call for further investigation which investors, in turn, consider to be sapping energy from the White House's principal mandate to overhaul healthcare and the tax system. Having been weak for the last five sessions, this political drama pushed the US$ to its lowest point against the international currency basket since November. Meanwhile, mix message were again are received on the economic front with housing starts and building permits unexpectedly seeing further downside in the month of April, while a separate report from the Federal Reserve produced a much bigger than expected increase in industrial production for the same period. Early strength in gold, semiconductor, and tobacco stocks largely dissipated, but modest weakness was still visible among healthcare and commercial real estate. A falling Dollar pressured stocks in Japan and cast broader concern over equity markets in the Asian region. Australia's ASX fell over 1% as the Prime Minister promoted the idea of a new levy on profits for the country's five largest banks while the principal Chinese markets finished modestly softer. London equities, by comparison, ended Tuesday in fine form, climbing for their eighth consecutive session to hit a new record all-time high and close the day above the 7,500 mark. Riding on the back of China's proposed US$900bn of infrastructural investment plan that stretches across 65 countries along the Silk Road, major commodity stocks were further boosted by continued Sterling weakness, while investors also increasingly anticipate the Tories securing a large majority in the UK forthcoming General Election with latest opinion polls putting Theresa May 20 points ahead of Jeremy Corbyn. Consumer inflation rose much as expected in April, to 2.7% from 2.3% in March, its highest level since 2013, having been buoyed significantly by Sterling's Brexit related devaluation. Despite remaining well above the Bank of England's 2% target rate, Governor Carney appears reluctant to combat rising prices with a rate hike; combine that with the alarming squeeze on real wages and Sterling is set to remain relatively constrained, something that lends significant support for the internationally-weighted FTSE-100. The STOXX 600 ended another day unchanged, with the CAC 40 closing down 0.2%, while the DAX 30 in Frankfurt made a late recovery to end flat. UK macro data due for release this morning includes March's Claimant Count Rate, Average Earnings, ILO Unemployment along with Claimant Change numbers for April. The EU provides Consumer Prices for April plus Construction Output for March. The US is limited to its MBA Mortgage Applications and EIA Crude Oil Stocks Change. UK Corporates due to publish earnings or trading updates, include British Land (BLND.L), SSE (SSE.L), Sophos (SOPH.L), Patisserie Holdings (CAKE.L), Countryside Properties (CSP.L), Mitchells & Butlers (MAB.L), Premier Oil (PMO.L) and Foxtons (FOXT.L). Uncertainty spreading from the US bodes for a cautious European opening this morning, with the FTSE-100 seen down 15 to 20 points in early trading."

"Big sigh of relief, even if traders know very major uncertainties remain! Turning higher early in the session, US stocks managed a somewhat half-hearted rebound Thursday evening, with the NASDAQ leading the way, having notched up their worst losses for several months across all three principal indices. Bargain hunters were in evidence amongst those who still believe President Trump can and will deliver on his ambitious, reflationary, tax cutting and deregulatory agenda, taking confidence from the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as Special Counsel to oversee an investigation into Russian meddling in last year's presidential election. Hard hit semiconductor and trucking stocks reversed part of yesterday's losses, with the S&P500's technology sector rising 0.6% despite Cisco tumbling over 7% on disappointing quarterly revenues, while the recently surging NYSE Arca Gold BUGS index gave back 2.4% as prices for June delivery for the precious metal slipped US$4.80 by mid-session. The overall rebound was supported by releases of upbeat economic data, however, with the Labor Department reporting another unexpected drop in initial jobless claims in the week ended May 13th and the Philadelphia Federal Reserve's regional manufacturing activity index unexpectedly expanding at a faster pace during the month of May, while the Conference Board's index of leading economic indicators rose by 0.3% in April as expected. In commodities trading, however, crude oil futures weakened during the US session to slip US$0.61 to US$48.46 a barrel after climbing USD0.41 to USD49.07 a barrel on Wednesday, before rebounding this morning, while base metal prices like copper did similarly. Asia ended mixed, however with the ASX again underperforming the region as stocks continue to be pressured by the PM's proposed bank tax on the nation's biggest banks and nervous commodities, pushing the headline index down about 2% on the week, its worst loss since October. The Nikkei tracked the US$ rebound, while the two main Chinese equities traded modestly in opposite directions. Yesterday's European session, saw the major markets retraced their early weakness following the US open. The FTSE100 closed down just 0.89%, well off its intraday low, having gleaned confidence from the reported recovery in UK retail sales which expended at a faster than expected pace in April; both Burberry Group (BRBY.L) and Royal Mail (RMG.L) found good support following positive news releases, while retrenching oils, minerals and property stocks are expected to recover modestly on today's opening. The pan-European STOXX 600 trimmed 0.5% on Thursday, with the CAC 40 losing 0.53% as the Xetra DAX dipped a more modest 0.33%. Amongst macro releases for today, the UK is expected to produce its CBI Industrial Trends Survey for May, while the EU offers its March Current Account data followed later by its May Consumer Confidence Preliminaries. The US is only scheduled to contribute its Baker Hughes US Oil Rig Count, although speeches are anticipated from the Fed's James Bullard and John Williams. UK corporates expected to publish earnings or trading updates include Hikma Pharmaceuticals (HIK.L), Future (FUTR.L), Close Brothers Group (CBG.L) and Moss Bros (MOSB.L). Equities in London appear willing to participate in the rebound this morning, with the FTSE-100 expected to rise around 25 points in early trading, although investors will clearly remain touch-sensitive on any new headlines from Capitol Hill. Evidence is being demanded following Trump's denial that he asked Comey to end the probe into Flynn's Russian connections, while the significance of his administration's overnight announcement regarding intent to renegotiate US's participation in NAFTA needs to be closely examined."
